Coincidently, Muti was in Japan to conduct his Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra for two performances March 16-17 as part of the Tokyo Spring Festival. The new stamp, which depicts Muti at the podium commemorates the joint signing of a treaty in 1866. “It is my honor to celebrate this anniversary by opening the Tokyo Spring Festival with concerts by an orchestra and chorus of young Japanese and young Italian musicians”, Muti said.

The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg made Luxembourg the country of her destiny when she married Henri, then Hereditary Grand Duke, on 14 February 1981. Visionary, modernist and active, she has developed her role as a committed humanitarian, with a desire to show the most authentic aspects of Luxembourg.


The Austrian Archducal Hat, the symbol of the unity of the Austrian hereditary lands, has been preserved to this day. It is the centerpiece of the collection at Klosterneuburg Monastery, and symbolises the Archduchy of Austria, the heartland of the Hapsburg Empire. Archduke Maximilian III, the Regent of Tyrol and brother of Rudolf II, presented it to the monastery in 1616 as a consecration gift, and it was kept there together with the relic of the skull of Saint Leopold. It was believed that some divine power would thus be transferred to the ruler who was “crowned” with it.
